The cat Is out of the bag at st. Tuberculosis Is curable and prevent able to a degree undreamed of a few years ago. There yet lingers In the lap of truth the lie that strong drink end consumption III off the undesirable cltlsens who have ess than the normal resisting power of the Yankee. Occasionally a medical back number Is discovered In the act of admitting Into general hospital for treatment a case of this communicable disease called con sumption. It makes mighty little differ ence to the victim of consumption where e is nut: so lone as he Is not given a permanent Immunity batlt tn outside air. Any other plun of handling hlra Is simply nother way around to the graveyard. The writer has lived In a family that was decimated by this white plague of clvtlUatlon. He has been the ' medical adviser of other families and prescribed bath tube of ood liver oil. No wonder the course of consumption In such cases was as typical as the course of true love. Just now we have the medical eye on a family that la making a gallant struggle against sure death. The family consists of father and mother, and three daugh tare. The parents are healthy people. One of the daughters contracted consumption In the publlo schools. Soms Intelligent peo pie still doubt the possibility of such a development coming out of the womb of the American educational system. They Insist It Is an Indictment against the pub llo sohool system to whisper that kind of charge. What oomea to pass If those who speak so, speak by the card? Every human unit needs a certain amount of breathing space. Education la a com pulsory process. And It Is deservedly so: but the sohool house Is ths magnet which attracts children from contaminated homes Just as powerfully as from thoss whero sanitation and hygiene do their perfect work. Make a child a common carrier of consumption and hs Is condemned to a lifetime . of disability. In the course of time he may graduate from the local high sohool and pass on to one of the state stltutfom for higher education. His case of consumption makes him a human bot tie of poison. The Idea that he has a hermetically sealed stopper In the bot tle excepting when he coughs spits and sweats la exploded. Every In dividual who comes Into his environment will be exposed to contamination by breath ng the air which has passed through his lungs, and been charged with the first oause of consumption. One of the daugh ters In the family . mentioned above spent year In a Montana state Institution and then came home to die of consumption. She eft her habitat at ths state Institution Infected; and capable of reproducing the disease In the body of the next occupant. This Is the naked truth unless the state attended promptly and rigidly to powerful fumigation. The second daughter went to sn Institution In the Mississippi valley to finish her education. At the end of the first year she suddenly found her mouth full of blood after the exertion of run ning rapidly up stairs. She Is now run nlng a Marathon race with consumption If her medical adviser understands the nature of the disease she may yet be re stored to health; but no Insurance com pany would take a risk on her life.

Quarantine at Pender. PENDER, Neb., June . To the editor of The Bee: I should like to have you publish tbe following in answer to the one sent you from here as published In the Saturday Bee, June 26, In regard to smallpox In Pender: The Bell Telephone people had smallpox having ona of the severest cases during this epidemic and had been under quaran tine thirty-five days from ths time was first Instituted. On Thursday, June 24, they called me In, asking when they could be released. As there were some scales still on the person of one of them I told them that I thought they should re main In quarantine until the last of the week. Saturday 26, or until the first of the following week, at which time thought we could release them. For some unaccountable reason ths physician, Dr. Buls, who had been attending them, called up the State Board of Health by telephone, and they told him to take down the quarantine. This was done by the state board without consulting the local board of health In any way. Our board of health ordered the quarantine card again put up. which was done by the marshal, who is a member of the board, whereupon Dr. Buls tore down the card, tearing up the card and throwing It into the street. We again put up another card, which he again tore down, tearing it Into pieces and throwing it into the street Our board of health then called up the State Board of Health and asked htm why It was that they were Interferln with the action of our board of health In an epidemic of smt-llpox that we liad for sometime been trying to stamp out. He stated that what he had done was Ignorance of any trouble and that th state Inspector, Mr. Wilson, would come snd adjust the same. He came on Frl j day, June 26. and stated In a public meet 1 Ing well represented by cltirens of Pender that the local board of health were Justi fied In continuing this quarantine as they had done, and recommended, as it was the last of the week, that after the local board had properly fumigated the place and dis infected the patients the quarantine could be raised. Friday night the place was dis infected and Saturday the card was taken down II. H. M'NAMARA, Cliatrman and Mayor. E. li. ROI.PH, City Physician. GARRY LOOKS LIRE WINNER Cincinnati Magnate Popular with Elks for Exalted Ruler. FIRST CONTINQEJrr GOES WEST Moat of Them Rxpreea Choice for Herrmann, Though They Like I Sammla, the Sioux City Candidate. The first of several special trains of Elks passing through Omaha enroute to the annual convention of the brotherhood t Ixs Angeles arrived In Omaha over the Milwaukee at :40 Wednesday morning. The train was chartered by the Tonkers (N. T.) lodge, and hsd on board members of the Elks lodges In Buffalo, Rochester, Albany, Syracuse, New York, Brooklyn and other cities of New Tork state. There were in all over 100 persons on the train, which was composed of seven Pullmans and a dining car. A stop of three hours was made In Omaha, the local order of the Elks fur nishing entertainment for the visitors while they were here. Some took automobile rides about the city, but most of them spent the three hours it. visiting the Elks' headquarters and In seeing the downtown district of Omaha. Nearly all the lodges represented on the special train were on record as favoring Oarry Herrmann, the Cincinnati base ball magnate, for the office of grand exalted ruler. Only one or two of the lodgee had unlnstrucled delegates. D. Curtis Qano, delegate from the Rochester lodge No. 24, said nearly all the lodges In the east favored Herrmann for the head office. I am Instructed to vote for Herrmann," said Mr. Gano, "and so are practically all the delegates on this train. It la my opin ion ho will be elected. Santnils a Fine Fellow. 'J. U. Sammis of Iowa, who Is also a candidate for the position of exalted ruler, Is a flno fellow. He Is a personal friend of mine and I would like to see htm get the Job, but the east seems to be nearly solid fur Herrmann, and I believe the Cincin nati man will win out. He Is backed by a strong organization and It will take a great movement to beat him. I believe Detroit will get the conven tion In 1910. We New Tork Elks favor that city and from what I have heard the rest of the eastern lodges are for the Michigan city." J. P. McCann of New Tork City, J, T. Warner of Pottsmouth, Pa.; R. Trultt of New Tork, W. Bernstein of Albany, Charles Reed of Rochester, B. B. Davis of Buffalo and Dr. J. R. Flanntgan of New York were among the prominent Elks on the train. Among the women passengers was Miss Grace Phillips, a grand opera singer of Englewood, N. Y. Most of the Elks on the train were ac companied by their wives. The New York Elks expect to visit Yel lowstone park and other places of In terest in the west before the convention oonvenes, on July 11. A long stop will be made at Denver.

The United States dirigible balloon No. L after two unsuccessful free flights and several captive flights at Fort Omaha, has been deflated, dismantled and sent to To ledo, O., with 200 hydrogen gas tubes. Lieutenants J. G. Winter and O. A. Dick inson accompanied the airship and will en deavor to fly the machine at Toledo dur ing the military tournament there, begin ning Monday. It is the opinion of many of tbe Signal corps officers that the dirigible la too small for actual experimental work. The balloon has a capacity of 20.000 cubla feet, but with the engine, propeller, skele'ton car and Its own weight, is of too buoyant capacity to permit much successful work being done with It, except under the most favorable conditions of wind and humidity. These conditions did not prevail at Fort Omaha during the stay of the balloon here No more balloon experiments will be xin- dertaken at Fort Omaha at the present. or until the arrival of the new spherical balloon to take the place of the one de stroyed several weeks ago after a success ful flight of 130 miles, with Captain Chan dler and Lieutenant Ware as the aero nauts.

The letter said the boys were making on the average eighty miles a day despite the fight they were compelled to make against the high water. The boys left Kansas City Tuesdsy nlflit and planned on reaching St. Louls Thurs day afternoon or night. Shriver Levies on Houses Built or in Process Enlarges Assessment Boll, bnt His Coarse Will Be Subjected to Legal Test. County Assessor Shriver is succeeding In enlarging his aKaengment roll. He Is as sessing houses for whose construction build ing permits have been issued, ' whether such houses have been built or not at the time the assessment Is made. Mr. Shriver says his course is no precedent, but his predecessor, II. D. Reed says It is new to htm; he did not pursue it. Victor R. McLucas, whose new home al Forty-second and Harney streets, was as sessed before It was built, and is not yet completed or occupied, wilt subject the proposition to a tent of the law as a mat ter of Information and principle. He Is an attorney and is of the opinion Mr. Shriver's action, while conducive to an enlarged as kessment roll, is not legal. Mr. Shriver lias been diligent In his ac tivity to assex such property and has had deputies out on scouting tours. "The assessment rolls will show about GOO new houses built since April 1, some of them completed and some not," said Mr. Bhrlver. "It would be unfair not to assess these houses and let people live in them without paying a tax on vthe prop erty, especially when some of thein were completed within thirty days and a short time after the anscsor made his rounds. "The law gives us the right to assess this uncompleted property, all listing to be done before July 1. When the property Is not completed the asm uxor unes his own Judgment and makes return of 'what he consldors the valuation would be by July 1. If this return is not satisfactory the owner of the property can appear before the Uoaid of Equalization and protest.

It is true that sunstroke or "heat stroke" will produce Insanity and Insanity of a violent kind through which a little wife or two may get a beating, or even a shoe thrown at her. Dr. George Tilden, member of the Doug las county Board of Insane Commissioners and a pschyatrlst of national reputation, was asked with regard to the dispatch from Whiting, Ind., which told of several men going wild with the heat and beating their wives. 'Sunstroke Is sometimes a cause of In sanity," said Dr. Tilden, "and heat also will produce a similar state. In this In diana town I think the development is too quick to be altogether true, but that pro longed heat spells will make some men In sane" Is an unquesloned fact. The insanity Is of a violent kind and wlfe-beatlng riot extraordinary In the circumstances." Dr. Tilden was Inclined to think that the wlfe-beatlng In question could be largely explained on the supposition that the heat had Just made th seven noble Hooslers Irritable.
